Odrivetool troubles

I have been unable to get the odrivetool to work on my computer. I have installed Anaconda by following the link in the Getting Started guide. In the Anaconda prompt, I got the following error.

ODrive control utility v0.4.7
Please connect your ODrive.
You can also type help() or quit().

Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\lib\threading.py", line 917, in _bootstrap_inner

  File "C:\ProgramData\Anaconda3\lib\site-packages\usb\core.py", line 1263, in find
    raise NoBackendError('No backend available')
usb.core.NoBackendError: No backend available

Could someone help point me toward a solution?


Hi Eric,

I know it’s been a while but did you manage to solve this problem? Do you still remember how you solved it?
